    [​IMG] Hi sorry if this is the wrong area for this post but I'm a ww2 newbie looking for help on Otto Felsing so was hoping someone could help me understand this document ? Specifically trying to trace a battalion he belonged to so I can trace his journey. Any help appreciated and thank you in advance.

    If you would like to see what happened to 5 RWK just to the west of Piedimonte San Germano I am taking a group to Cassino 19-22 May 18. From Piedimonte, it is very easy to appreciate why 5 RWK in the area of the sunken road, suffered so heavily.

    I will also be able show you what 5 RWK got up to as part of 21 Indian Brigade, 8 Indian Division during the Fourth Battle of Cassino - before they ended up below Piedimonte San Germano.

    I am confident that you will find Cassino absolutely fascinating. Not only is it iconic but the four battles between Jan-May 44 are full of incompetence and utter brilliance.

    Do check out my website for more information.

    Regards
